#BeAMan @RahulGandhi, learn to respect the Shakti. This is the land of Durga, who vanquished Mahishasura, and you claim to be a ‘janeudhari brahmin’. Don’t talk like a misogynist who thinks a woman was created out of a man’s rib!— Shefali Vaidya (@ShefVaidya) January 10, 2019
Rahul Gandhi betrays the misogynistic mindset of the Congress party. That also explains the several instances of women being exploited in the Congress ranks.— Amit Malviya (@amitmalviya) January 10, 2019
Disgraceful to see Congress President stoop so low. #BeAMan
Of all people Rahul Gandhi shud not say this.— Shilpa Nair (@shilpamdas) January 10, 2019
When his father was killed in 1991, the whole of Congress went to his mother’s doorstep, asking her to lead the party. The scene repeated in 1998.
No one said Cong is trying to hide behind a Woman.
In his own words, #BeAMan Rahul.
The National Commission for Women also issued a notice to Gandhi over his statement.

Gandhi, while addressing a rally in Jaipur, said that “The watchman with a 56-inch chest [a reference to Modi] ran away and told a woman, Sitharaman ji, defend me.” Later, he also tweeted, "Stop shaking. Be a man and answer my question: Did the Air Force and Defence Ministry object when you bypassed the original Rafale deal?"
